This weekend's movie news practically wrote it's own good vs. evil headline. "Charlie's Angels," the campy wide-screen take on the '70s TV action series, beat out the new Adam Sandler comedy about the devil's son, "Little Nicky," for the top spot on the box office chart. The military drama "Men of Honor," with Cuba Gooding, Jr.. and Robert De Niro, also opened strong. Of the three films, "Men" got the best reviews.
